If your machine has a "soft" power button, it's more than likely
possible to use ACPI to configure it.
Make sure you've got ACPI on in the kernel, and install and run the
The kernel logs ACPI events in /proc/acpi/events. acpid listens to this
and can be configured to run different scripts on different events.
So like one of the other followups said, you then simply set the
"powerbtn" event (or whatever it's called) to run a shutdown script.
